Welcome. This is called the insomnia thread, but we post 24/7/365. We call ourselves Owlettes :)
No nastiness, bullying, stalking or such allowed. I would like to keep the kind fabric of this thread intact.
Discussion will flow where it will as all threads do. This will be a happy place. I hope with lots of laughing. Talk of things, needs, rants as your mood or thoughts take you. Each person here has a history of helping others. Threads develop pseudo family groups. Fancy way to say we become like family. This family will have all the best a family has to offer, but none of the negatives.

You are very welcome! You are not wrong in any way for wanting to make your doctor aware of how you feel. I have had to do this and it feels good to do so.
This weekend didn’t get off to a good start. Hubby is sick with a cold. He got it from people at work who are sick.
